This is an updated version of the DVD “How to Build a Scale Release Automatic” that I released back in 2002. While most of my techniques have not changed, today’s technology has allowed me to release a higher quality product.

I originally put this video together because of the lack of information that is available in the area of building automatic knives.

This video covers:  

  • The principle behind designing your own scale release auto
  • The parts and tools used for making the knife
  • The methods used to make and fit up all of the knife’s parts
  • And how to assemble the working knife

Building a scale release auto is an advanced level knifemaking project. It helps to have some experience in building folding knives prior to starting this project. If you have made a lock-back folder, then you are well on your way to building a scale release auto.

Because of the advanced nature of this project, this video does not cover:

  • How to solder liners and bolsters
  • How to grind the bevels and edge on the blade
  • How to heat-treat the blade, lock-bar, and back
  • And How to clean up the bolsters and scales

(Running Time: 3 Hours 10 Minutes)
